This caldecott I would describe as nice and neat. The picture seem to be put together so well and everthying feels so symetrical throught the book. This book is very easy on the eyes and a way to bring up topics about the water.
Review: This book is about a little boy who loves science, as he goes to the beach and tries to find Flotsam, which is anything that floats ashore. To the boys surprise he finds a camera that has been encrusted by a barnacle. The boy is astonished by his discovery and all the treasures it holds.
Caldecott and was written in 2006. This is also a picture but it doesnt have any words. This story takes place on the beach where a young boy finds a camera with very abstract ideas on each photo. He then finds a photo of a girl that the camera is to belong to. He goes on to see that it's gone through generations of children that find it next to the beach. He throws it back to sea so that the next child can it and use it.
David Weisner is the creative illustrator of the Caldecott winning wordless picture book "Flotsam" (SF). The bright pictures tell the story of a boy at the beach who finds a camera washed up on shore. He develops the film and finds pictures of the fantastical things it comes across throughout the ocean deep and many years. This is a good Storytelling option because teachers get to help students fill in the story for themselves. #lae3414sp19

Illustrations are beautifully detailed. Picture book, plot flows well from picture to picture. Young boy finds an underwater camera that contains pictures of life under the sea, along with many pictures of pictures of children from around the world. Characters are diverse and some date back from when there was no color photos. Flotsam, David Wiesner. The Caldecott Medal. 2006.
Literally just looked up this word and it makes perfect sense for the title! LOVED the illustrations for this book, as it was like a mini GN & provided a cute story about a “flotsam” underwater camera that makes its way to this boy & has amazing images taken under the sea & on land 💕 A cute, must-read!!
